Heart Earth | [Ivan Doig]

Heart Earth

National Book Award finalist Ivan Doig had only a vague memory of his mother until he discovered a cache of her letters. They revealed a passionate, can-do woman who loved the lilting rhythm of words. A moving prequel to his acclaimed memoir This House of Sky, Doig’s Heart Earth highlights his childhood before his mother’s death and eloquently captures the texture of the American West, the fortunes of a family, and one woman’s indomitable spirit.

    Story
    "Sweet, sad, funny, poetic memoir of Doig's family"
    If you could sum up Heart Earth in three words, what would they be?

    lyrical, insightful memoir


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud a few times, but was mostly in awe of Doig's ability to help me experience what he and his parents experienced during his childhood.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the way Doig concisely evokes a whole world of feeling; he sees such humor, poetry, and intensity in each moment and place. Somehow he notices everything.. A sweet, sad, funny memoir of his childhood and his mother.
